Read the Following from The Bible Detective: Mixed-Up Stories to Test Your Bible Knowledge.  The first person to bring the correct answer into the Library will receive a hardback copy of Illustrated Life of Jesus: a Visual Retelling of His Amazing Story with photos, maps, and illustrations, by Herschel H. Hobbs.
"To say that Rhoda was a little flighty would be an understatement.  She could get caught up in the moment and forget everything that came before or the consequences that would come afterward.  That's how she was the night Peter came to the house where she was a servant.
According to all accounts pieced together, Pontius Pilate had thrown Peter and James into prison.  Peter was in one cell and James was in another.  The night before his trial Peter was not only bound with two chains, but he was also sleeping between two guards.  Sometime during the night someone struck Peter in the side.  When he looked up he saw an angel.  The room was filled with light, and the chains fell off Peter's wrists.  The angel told him to put on his clothes, his shoes, and his coat and to follow along.
Peter and the angel walked right out of the prison, passing guards all along the way.  They came to the gate of the city, which was made of iron, and it mysteriously opened to let them go through.  They flew above the city until the angel left Peter at the door of a house.  It wasn't until then that Peter realized it wasn't a dream at all: he really was out of jail!
The angel had deposited Peter at Mary's house.  In that very house Christians were praying for Peter.  Peter knocked at the entrance and, wouldn't you know, Rhoda was the one who came to the door.  Before she opened it Peter told her who he was.  She got so excited that she ran back to tell the others--before she even let Peter into the house!  Poor Peter had to continue knocking until the rest of the group came to the front of the house and finally greeted him.  He told them the story of his release and then left."
